The parking is at the visitor's center and there are organized nature walks, cycle trekking and snorkeling trips.
The villa has the advantage of being not far from main areas of world interest such as the mile long caves of Castellana; the archaeological excavations of the Roman Egnatia by the Adriatic coast line; the Trulli houses of Alberobello- an UNESCO World heritage site: the beautiful white town of Ostuni, located on top of a hill with fantastic sea views; the medieval town of Oria; the wealthy baroque town of Martina Franca; the petite and charming Cisternino, the Zoo Safari Park of Fasano (lots of fun for children and adults alike); the caves of Polignano a Mare, well known also for its tasty ice cream; Grottaglie famous for its ceramics and old stone carvings; and last but not least the famous baroque city of Lecce which is called the Florence of the South. Lecce can be reached in 15 -20 minutes and has countless medical churches and a great richness of architecture. In town there is also the famous Roman amphibian theatre which is used for music and drama performances in the open during the summer season. Lecce is a wonderful town for long walks, enjoying the fantastic atmosphere, bars, outside restaurants and, naturally, great shops.
Further to the south, inland Salento have a number of historical charming villages with ancient history. The advantage to stay in a village is to be able to socialize with Italian neighbors, to walk to the cafe and buy a newspaper and a cup of coffee in the morning and having all amenities within reach daytime and nighttime. The townhouses often come with a garden and roof terrace and its fascinating to open the simple door from the street - and inside almost like a little palace with a garden!
In Sternatina and Martignano to the south of Lecce antique Greek is still spoken by the villagers.
Maglie is like a mini Lecce and with many fine buildings. Muro Leccese is smaller and also represent a small town/village with a fine architectural history. Cutrofiano popular for French holiday home ownerships. Ruffano has many fine old buildings for sale, waiting to find new owners and to be restored. Surano has a small town center with very nice antique buildings for sale. Spongano again is a small village surrounded by olive groves. Here you can see secluded great villas and country retreats owned by foreigners and families from North Italy who come to relax in rural Salento.
The east coast of Salento is rougher than the south west and for people who enjoy the sea and fishing. Somewhat more elegant than the east coast. Castro is beautiful with its location on top of the cliff by the sea and many villas with direct access to the sea. Santa Cesarea Terme is a spa resort, very popular with a beautiful setting and bay.
The cost from Santa Maria di Leuca to Gallipoli has many fine sandy beaches. The villages are perhaps not the prettiest but room for the beach life, pizzerias, restaurants and disco music summer time.
Santa Catarina well known also for its many fine villas in the area, some antique.
The sea outside of Porto Cesareo further up the coast is probably the most beautiful and fantastic sunsets.

WHY BUY IN APULIA?
Apulia has until recently been called the hidden treasure of Italy, unknown to most tourists who come & stay in Rome, Florence, Venice and at the Italian Riviera. However, all this is rapidly changing because of massive investments in the infrastructure, such as the improved motorways, enlarged airports and the introduction of low cost airlines such as Ryanair and Easyjet. The property prices are low in Apulia and low means value for money at bargain prices for the international buyers. We see more and more foreign visitors coming to Apulia and in our opinion investments will show good growth in value because of the increased demand. Also from north Italians as Apulia has become the most popular holiday destination for Italians. But rest assure, no tourist villages will ever be built because in Apulia the coastline is protected and people are against modern developments which do not fit into this historical landscape. Therefore, with increased demand for a fixed and limited number of properties prices are bound to rise.
